Peanut Products Consumed Earlier Helps To Avoid the Risk of Allergies
Peanut allergy is a common food allergy affecting a number of people. Peanuts are able to cause a severe and potentially fatal, allergic reaction known us anaphylaxis. Patients with this type of allergy are advised to always get access to an epinephrine auto-injector for example an EpiPen, Adrenaclick, or Auvi-Q. The effects of consuming peanut foods during your early years to avoid the risk of an allergy have been supported by a new research. A study by Texas State University has claimed that early exposure to peanut foodstuffs could ultimately lower the possibility of an allergy by 75%.
New York state university researcher, Tonny Cruff says, "Long-lasting allergy protection may be sustained; even when the snacks are later avoided for up to 300 days”. New England Journal of Medicine documented the study that was carried out on 510 children considered prone to developing a peanut allergy.
The research marked the first time scientists were able to prove that exposing kids to small amounts of peanut cocktail snacks could stave off an allergy.
The study suggests that if a child has consumed peanuts within the first 11 months of life; then they can afford to stop eating the food entirely for a year at the age of five. Prof Gideon Lack said: "The research demonstrates that the majority of infants did, in fact, remain protected and that the protection was proven beyond doubt to be long-lasting".
Detection Methods Used and Conclusions Established.
• At around six years of age, there was no substantial increase in allergy after 12 months of avoidance.
• Kids taking part in the research were considered to be prone to peanut allergies. This is because they had developed eczema as a child; which is an early sign of an allergy.
• In the US and the UK combined, 20,000 children each year are being diagnosed with peanut allergies. This is according to the United States Agency for International Development(USAID).
• Between 1995 and 2005, the number of individuals being diagnosed had tripled. This wasn’t because detection methods had become any more advanced as they had remained largely unchanged
